Mike might think differently!

Heading out to buy clothes, shoes, groceries…ugh!

Junk Shopping….

I’m there!

and I’m there…

for hours!

This last Saturday was Junk in the Trunk Vintage Market in Scottsdale.

In Arizona it’s hard to find vintage goodness.  When you do find a great chippy old window, or old barn wood you’re going to pay quite a bit.

That’s why I like the aging wood technique so much.  I can’t find old wood easy so I make it.

Now you know why I don’t have a cooking blog!

junk shopping #junk #fun #diyI’m not sure if the vendors were thinking this, but I’ve always wanted to set up a “fireplace” with an old desk.  Fun idea for anyone without a fireplace and no jigsaw to make one.

        Chris, I do love a spindle! The $28 thing was a lantern candle holder. The line to buy was l~o~n~g so I decided I would make one…someday! The Junk in the Trunk was almost twice as large as last year. The next one is May and I’m already planning the trip. 🙂 ~Jeanette

      Hi Jeanette, I know exactly what you wound up adding to the pile, the spindle on STEROIDS! You are too funny! I would be a fool to leave that beauty behind, for someone else to give it a home. Great find!!
      Can’t wait to see what you’re going to do with the rest, but as usual, it will be awesome and inspiring!

      Thanks for sharing the hunt!
